New & Noteworthy: Brinley Addington

Brinley Addington’s passion for Country music began well before the small town singer can even remember. At age three, The Kingsport, TN native began climbing on top of his parent’s coffee table pretending he was performing on the Grand Ole Opry.

Brinley was influenced early on by the hymns he heard on Sunday morning and the traditional country voices of Randy Travis, Vince Gill, and Alan Jackson. As time went by, Brinley gained inspiration from modern country artists like Garth Brooks and Tim McGraw as well as his parents’ love of bluegrass music. In the fourth grade, a reluctant Brinley was encouraged to enter the school talent show where he performed in front of a crowd for the very first time. At age 12, Brinley began singing at Church where he received the support and encouragement he needed to pursue his goal of making music.

Since moving to Nashville in 2008, Brinley has had the honor of opening shows for several major artists including Florida-Georgia Line, Chris Young, Thomas Rhett, Josh Turner, Jon Pardi, Justin Moore, Tyler Farr, Gavin DeGraw, Marty Stuart, Ronnie Milsap, and has served as headliner at numerous fairs, festivals, and college events in the southeast.  Addington is a signed songwriter at HoriPro Entertainment and penned Tyler Farr’s latest single, “I Should Go To Church Sometime.”

“‘No Thanks’ is such a cool song. I knew I had to cut it the first time I heard it. It’s high energy, fun, and pretty spot on about how I feel about the bars I go to. Can’t imagine this record without it.”
